"I SUFFERED FROM 
NERVOUS DEPRESSION" . . 

says Miss Morris 

"I have been in Deaconess 
work for 22 years and was all 
fagged out. I suffered from 
nervous depression and female 
weakness. The Vegetable 
Compound did wonders for me 
in relieving my tired nerves. 
At present I am nursing my 
crippled father and I shall take 
the Compound again when I 
feel the need.''— Miss Myrtle 
M. Morris, Burford, Ontario. 




"IT RELIEVED MY BACKACHE" . . says Mrs. Spring. 

"I think everyone should know about your Vegetable 
Compound. I took it before my baby was born and I 
take it whenever I fegj run down. About a year ago I 
suffered terrible pains in my abdomen. My back felt 
as though it were almost ciit in two at times. Lydia E. 
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound gave me almost imme- 
diate relief."— Mrs. Maude E. Spring, 140 Main Street 
East, Toronto, Ontario.

"It is Helping Me a Lot'* .... 

Says Mrs. Peterson 

"Your Vegetable Compound is certainly a won- 
derful medicine in general. I took six bottles when I 
was fourteen years old. I am now twenty-five and I 
am taking it again for painful and scanty menstrua- 
tion. It is helping me a lot. My nerves are better. I am 
gaining pep and I am in good spirits. I am a farmer's 
wife and I can do my work every day. My mother used

Strengthened After Operation 

"I was a music teacher and pianist in a dance orches- 
tra. In 1928 I fell and injured my knee joint. It devel- 
oped into a very bad case of osteomylitis. I had three 
operations in eighteen months. One year ago I began 
walking, although my knee is stiff. In my weakened 
condition I was also troubled with women's ailments. 
My sister advised me to take Lydia E. Pinkham's Veg- 
etable Compound, and I did. It gave me so much more 
pep and strength. I have taken both the Vegetable 
Compound and the Tablets during the past year. Also 
the Liver Pills. All these medicines help me." 

MRS. TILDA JORDAN, 

Gentilly, Quebec. 



Helped Her Young Daughter 

**My daughter Mae is 16. She had very bad pains in 
her lower abdomen and the upper part of her legs. She 
usually stayed in bed two days. We saw Lydia E. 
Pinkham's Tablets advertised so we tried them. They 
relieved her pains and she does not suffer now like she 
did." 

MRS. ALBERT LARSON, 

Kempton, North Dakota. 



After the Baby Came 

"After my baby came I was sick for quite a while. Then I 
was irregular. I took Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound 
for backaches and cramps during my period and had wonderful 
results. My nerves are better and I have gained pep. I have 
a good appetite and feel much better than I did. I have read 
lots of testimonials about Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com- 
pound. I certainly recommend it to mothers and mothers to be."

Compound 

Helps During Pregnancy" — 
Says Mrs. Donaldson. Read This Letter

Before my baby was bom 
I was thin and so tired. I 
was nervous and all run- 
down. I had read about 
Lydia E. Pinkham's Veg- 
etable Compound i n 
newspapers and maga- 
zines so I decided to try 
it. As soon as I com- 
menced taking your won- 
derful medicine I could 
feel myself getting much 
better. I could work all 
day without getting tired. My doctor said he never saw 
anyone like me. I was so well. No swollen feet and no 
kidney trouble. Thanks to your medicine I had an easy 
time. I recommend it to all my friends and I shall take 
it again if need be."

advertise it to everybody because I know it is good." |

The Medicine Your Mother and Your 
6 Grandmother Depended On 



How About Your Table? 

Even the simplest meal 
seems to taste better if 
the table is attractive. 
Dishes and glassware 
need not be expensive. 
Very dainty ones can be 
purchased at the 5 and 10 
Cent Store. Buy several 
sets in different colors for 
variety. Colored cloths 
and napkins are popular 
now especially in the 
small luncheon and 
breakfast sizes. They 
launder easily and make 
the table look bright and 
cheerful. A few flowers in 
the center of the table are 
nice. Keep them low. It 
is very annoying to have 
to talk across the table 
through the centerpiece. 

Above all, keep the table clean and neat. Let your 
dishes be immaculate, your silver shining, your glass 
sparklmg and your linen spotless. A table should never 
look as if everything had been '^thrown'' on it. Keep 
the knives, forks, and spoons straight and the dishes 
orderly. 

Place the knife at the right of the plate with the 
sharp edge toward the plate. Fork at the left of the 
plate, tmes up. Teaspoon beyond the knife. If several 
spoons and more than one knife and fork are needed for 
the meal, place them in the order they will be used 
working toward the plate. 

The bread and butter plate goes at the left, beyond 
and above the fork. Water glass at the right, above the 

If hot meat is to be served, warm the plates. 
Before serving dessert, remove all used dishes and 
silver. Brush the crumbs from the table cloth 7

About this 

Medicine 




Don't Read This 

Unless you are interested in a 
medicine which has helped over 
700,000 women and girls. Take 
it before and after childbirth, 
at the Change or whenever you 
are nervous and rundown. 98 
out of 100 say, "It helps me!" 

LYDIA E. PINKHAM'S 
VEGETABLE COMPOUND 

14 



More than half the 
women who take Lydia E. 
Pinkham's Vegetable Com- 
pound buy their first bot- 
tle because some friend or 
neighbor recommended it. 
When they find out from 
personal experience how 
good this medicine is, they 
tell others. So it goes — a 
lengthening chain. Right 
in your own neighborhood 
there must be a woman 
who can recommend our 
Vegetable Compound. Talk 
to her. 



German Woman Helped 

"I have been six years in 
America. In Germany I 
used to suffer terrible pain 
and my mother gave me 
peppermint which helped a 
little. When I came here 
our neighbors told me 
about Lydia E. Pinkham's 
Vegetable Compoimd. I 
am thankful because it 
helped me. After Junior 
was bom I was nervous 
and dizzy. One day I 
found one of your booklets 
and read the statements of 
other ladies, I took the 
Vegetable Compound for 
six months and was all 
right. After Richard came 
I was rundown but thanks 
to Lydia Pinkham I am 
well again. — Mrs. Joseph 
Nowak, 811 Veto St., N. 
W., Grand Rapids, Michi- 
gan. 



Use a Lot of Milk 




Milk is our most near- 
ly perfect food. Consid- 
ering the nutriment it 
contains, it is our cheap- 
est food also. In paring 
down your food bills, do 
not skimp on milk. 

Children should have a 
quart of milk every day ; 
adults at least a pint. It 
is not necessary to drink 
all this milk. Use it in 
cream sauces, puddings, 
cream toast, ice cream, 

soups, chowders, cakes and in many other ways. Chil- 
dren can take quite a quantity of milk on their cereals. 

The regular and generous use of milk in any form 
will help to increase weight and promote growth. Milk 
is highly recommended for underweight children and 
rundown adults. 

Sometimes children and invalids, who should drink 
milk, refuse it because they dislike the taste. To over- 
come this difficulty, flavor the milk with chocolate, 

vanilla or nutmeg. Some- 
times the novelty of 
irinking through a straw 
will overcome a child's 
aversion to milk. Oval- 
tine, Cocomalt and other 
hot drinks are valuable 
for the milk they require 
as well as for the choco- 
late and other ingred- 
ients which they contain. 
Such a hot drink is excel- 
lent to induce sleep.

Efficient Marketing 




Buy 



Go to market yourself if 
possible. Watch the ad- 
vertisements. Stock up at 
sale prices on canned 
goods and package goods 
which will keep just as 
well in your home as in 
the store. But do not be 
mislead by cheap prices. 
Reliable standard brands 
are more economical in the 
long run. 

Buy vegetables and 
fruit in large quantities if 
you have a cool, dark place 
to store them. If you have 
no storage space, or if 
your family is small, buy 
'in season'' for best quality 



in small quantities, 
and lowest prices. 

Lettuce — select hard, crisp heads. 

Spinach — select stocky, well developed plants with 
crisp green leaves. Avoid yellow leaves and flabby 
plants. 

Onions — avoid sprouted ones. White onions have the 
mildest flavor. 

Cabbage — Choose solid, heavy heads. 

String Beans — fresh beans snap easily and are clean 
and free from blemishes. 

Bananas — are best for eating when the skins are 
flecked with brown. Keep bananas out of the refriger- 
ator. 

Oranges — Florida oranges have the most juice and 
are usually cheaper. Large navel oranges have more 
peel, but are firmer for desserts.

Efficient Marketing . . . continued 

Grapefruit — should be thin skinned and heavy with 
juice. 

Eggs — come in several grades. For breakfast use or 
for children and invalids, fresh eggs are desirable. 
Cheaper and smaller eggs are used in cooking. There 
is no valid objection to cold storage eggs, since they are 
laid in the Spring when eggs are best. 

Chicken — A young bird has a flexible breast bone. 
Short legs and a plump breast indicate the most meat 
for your money. The female is usually more tender. 
Hens are cheaper than chickens and have more meat. 
They may be parboiled and roasted, or used for pie, 
stew or fricassee. 

Turkey — Black feet indicate a young bird. A short 
hen turkey weighing 8 to 10 pounds is a good buy be- 
cause it has more white meat and less carcass, in pro- 
portion, than a larger bird.

get so weak and nervous that sometimes I just thought 
I couldn't stand to live a bit longer. I would get crying 
spells and just cry for two or three hours at a time and 
not even know what I was crying about. When that was 
over I would feel so tired, and I couldn't sleep or even 
eat a meal. The cooking of it was all I could do. I kept 
getting thinner all the time and thought I had better 
do something about it. I saw your medicine advertised 
in the papers and read letters from different ones which 
had used it. So I thought there would be no harm in 
giving it a trial. I bought a box of Tablets and I notic- 
ed a difference right away. I have only used one box, 
but I certainly feel like a new person. I have vowed I 
shall never be without a supply of them in my medicine 
chest any more. I will certainly tell all my friends 
about the wonderful results received."

LYDIA E. PINKHAM^S 
22 VEGETABLE COMPOUND 



Kitchen Economies 

Dampen stale rolls or 
muffins and heat them 
through in the oven. You 
can hardly tell them from 
freshly baked. 

Potato chips, crackers 
and flake cereals often get 
limp and rubbery in damp 
weather. A few minutes 
in the oven will restore 
their original crispness. 

If your children refuse 
to drink milk, buy a pack- 
age of straws and serve 
"sodas" in tall glasses. For 
variety, add a few drops 
of vanilla. Cold cocoa 
makes a chocolate soda. 

Use up left over berries 
or fruit as a garnish on 
your breakfast cereal. 

Stale cake makes a good cottage pudding. Cut away 
all frosting from the cake. Arrange in slices on individ- 
ual plates and pour hot lemon sauce over it. Top with 
a bit of jelly. 

Cracked eggs need not be thrown away. Use them in 
cake or custards at once. 

Paper doilies and napkins are inexpensive and save 
laundry. The family will enjoy eating picnic style in 
summer. 

Save gas by filling up your oven. Bake cake, pudding, 
pies or custards while you are baking potatoes. If you 
are roasting meat, slip in a pan of apples to bake or an 
escalloped dish. 

Don't throw away the water in which you cook veg- 
etables. Part of the nourishment of the vegetables is 
in this water. Save it to use in soups and sauces.

How's Your Complexion 
Today? 

Does a pimply face embarrass you? 

Humors and eruptions 
are among the most com- 
mon indications and re- 
sults of a run-down condi- 
tion. Such eruptions are 
unpleasant, often embar- 
rassing, and give the face 
an unhealthy appearance. 
^They are not usually es- 
pecially serious or danger- 
ous. More serious results 
may come, however, at 
any time from the ac- 
cumulated impurities which they indicate. 

Good home treatment is necessary. Eat plain, nutri- 
tious and easily digested food. Get plenty of sleep 
and fresh air. Take Lydia E. Pinkham's Blood Medicine 
one-half hour before meals. If constipation is present 
— as it often is — take Lydia E. Pinkham's Liver Pills. 
The Blood Medicine works in harmony with both the 
Vegetable Compound and the Liver Pills. 




From Mother of Nine 

"I am the mother of nine children and never had to 
take any tonic before, but after my last baby came I 
was very weak and rundown. I could not^eat or sleep. 
Some days I could not do my work. I used to have cry- 
ing spells thinking I was going to die. My friends said 
I looked horrid and advised me to take Lydia E. Pink- 
ham's Vegetable Compound. After taking three bottles 
I feel like a new woman. I take care of the family and 
work out when I can get it.'*

have been taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com- 
pound for painful periods and it is helping me. A 
friend of mine told me about it."

Serve Soup for Health 

In planning budget 
meals for your family do 
not overlook the value of 
soup. Either as a first 
course or as the main part 
of the meal, soups, broths 
and stews are nourishing, 
economical and excellent 
for children. Canned 
soups are delicious and 
are now available in such variety that it hardly seems 
worthwhile to make our own. Keep several cans in 
the pantry for emergencies. These concentrated soups 
are usually prepared by adding water. For a cream 
soup, substitute milk. 




CROUTONS 



Cut stale bread in slices V2 inch thick. Trim off crusts and cut 
the bread into V2 inch squares, or into strips if you prefer. Put 
them in a shallow pan and bake in a moderate oven until golden 
brown. Keep in glass jars to serve with soup. 

CRISPY CRACKERS 

Split round common crackers in halves. Spread the inside with 
butter. Lay the crackers buttered side up on a cookie sheet or 
shallow pan and bake in the oven until golden brown. Serve 
with soup. These may also be served hot to eat with jelly or 
marmalade. 

LEMON SAUCE 

V2 cup sugar 1 tbsp. cornstarch 

1 cup boiling water l^^ tbsp. lemon juice 

or tsp. lemon extract 

Mix sugar and cornstarch in a double boiler. Add water slowly, 
stirring constantly to prevent lumps. Cook 5 minutes. Add 
lemon juice. Remove from fire and serve hot. Excellent for a 
sauce on pudding. A good way to use up stale cake, too.

others."

strength and energy when 
she was nervous and run- 
down . . . kept her on the job 
all through the Change. No 
wonder she recommends it.
